2017 Club Outreach
Swift Creek YMCA Bright Beginnings Shopping
Bright Beginnings is a program at the YMCA where they pair kids and role model adults to have a shopping experience together. Each child will leave the evening with new clothes and a backpack ready to start the new school year. (August)
World Polio Day
World Polio Day was October 24, 2017. The club educates the community on polio. We were able to explain that every $.25 that they donated equaled one dose of vaccine to prevent polio from getting a foothold in our eradication zones. Many people have never heard of polio, so it gave us a chance to do a little teaching as well. Our Interact Clubs also have Purple Pinkie days in conjunction with World Polio Day.
Richmond Friends of the Homeless
Club members provide and serve food to feed approximately 100+ homeless citizens in south Richmond. (Monthly)
Meals on Wheels
Highway Pick Up
Highway pick up allows us to keep our little corner of Chesterfield clean. We meet every other month on Saturday morning to spend about an hour picking trash and debris on Charter Colony parkway between Genito and St Francis Hospital. You would be surprised at what you might find. Every so often we even have a contest about who found the strangest thing and even make up a story to explain it…if it can be explained. Then we meet for coffee, bagels and fellowship.
We provide presents to families in need of the basics. We search out people that are not in the system and struggling to make ends meet.
McGuire Veterans Thanksgiving Meal
Each year the club provides and serves lunch to the patience, visitors and staff in the Poly Trauma unit at the McGuire VA Medical Center. (annual)
